    Hey everyone,

    My UV has got a bit of a problem.

    See the neck pickup? It seems like the pickup tab where the height adjustment screw goes into is stripped out so the spring just pushes it all the way down. How can i fix this?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Did you find it like this one day or did it happen while you were adjusting the height? If it happened while you were raising the pickup, it's possible that you just backed-out the screw all the way and it's now just hanging by the bass side screw.

    You won't know for sure until you take the pickguard off. EDIT: ninja'd on the nut advice.

    I've had the pickguard off i'm pretty certain the tab's stripped. Guess i'm off to the hardware store to get this nut. Thanks for the help!
